jbd2: Remove __GFP_NOFAIL from jbd2 layer
Theodore Ts'o [Tue, 27 Jul 2010 15:56:05 +0000 (11:56 -0400)]
__GFP_NOFAIL is going away, so add our own retry loop.  Also add
jbd2__journal_start() and jbd2__journal_restart() which take a gfp
mask, so that file systems can optionally (re)start transaction
handles using GFP_KERNEL.  If they do this, then they need to be
prepared to handle receiving an PTR_ERR(-ENOMEM) error, and be ready
to reflect that error up to userspace.
